    Pretty easy question, or is it?

    Can someone honestly tell me what they live for? Is it for happiness, love, your family?

    I live for the day I make a difference in this world.

    I'm hoping one day I'll feel better. There's a chance of it happening, but the even greater chance that I'll never make it till then :mellow:. I don't actually live for a lot, if anything. I take it day by day usually. Not much happens. Thankfully my memory/attention span has deteriorated, so boredom isn't always as crippling as it used to be :tongue:.

    I stay alive for the sake of my daughter.

    I can sort of relate with you. My memory isn't the greatest, so doing absolutely nothing all day actually isn't all that bad... but I have to admit, it does get a little old. I guess I could go do some more activities that I like to do (snowboarding, playing basketball, sex) but none of that really makes me that happy anymore. It's kind of like a temporary fix like drugs and alcohol. That's why I made this thread, because I'm just curious what other people live for.

    I live for the hope that things will get better and easier, not that I believe in that fairytale bullshit, I just guess it is one day at a time. Sometimes I wonder what the hell is going on with my life, I guess there is no such thing as "normal" but I am looking to see what happens, that false hope that I may learn to smile.

    Survival and procreation in imprinted in our genes. Its as basic as food and water.

    I dont really care about procreating or passing on my genes, god knows one of me is enough.
    I also dont care much about life so I must belong to a minority.

    I live only so that my family may be spared the agony of my suicide.

    I try to be a little helpful to others. I basically work for God till he calls me home.

    Hmm, well i can't really say my family because they are fuck heads. I don't really have many friends. Partly why I am still here is Krista. Another part is that I want to help kids who have been abused like I was and I can't do that from the grave.

    People live for the sake of living. We're born into this world and have no choice but to live it out while we can (unless of course we opt out and commit suicide). In other words, life is all about the feelings, accomplishments, experiences, and obstacles that we encounter.
